ORUN, Post-Apotheosis Space Opera RPG



Post Apotheosis Space Opera RPG

Eons ago, we were a desperate and different people, all vying for dominance of the galaxy. Fearful... Angry... Greedy... Shaped by petty desires... When the beings called Orisha came, they showed us a better way. They created Utopian worlds, Oruns, especially for us. These worlds and all the others of the galaxy flourished. The peoples of the galaxy were happy. They guided us to apotheosis, transcendence from the physical reality, and expansion of our Ori.
Then, with a single stray thought, it was all torn apart. The mnemonic Sopona virus spread throughout the galaxy. Worlds fell into catatonic states, others hurt themselves in unspeakable ways, and all that stood against the psychic maelstrom was the Union of Ascendancy and some of the ascendant, the Oluru, who returned. Ultimately the war was won, the Sopona virus contained, and order restored... but the secret of apotheosis was lost.

That was over 500 years ago.

In Orun, you play an envoy of the ascendant Oluru, called a Djali or Luminary. Not quite ascendant themselves, the Luminaries travel to different worlds as advisers, troubleshooters, and peacekeepers in the post-apotheosis galaxy. They explore lost star systems and ultimately help enlighten worlds and their people, waking the galaxy from its disordered indolence.
ORUN is a complete roleplaying game of Afrocentric space opera adventure. Within, you will find:

  • A rich and fully realized, and immersive Afrocentric science fiction setting in the Post- Apotheosis Age
  • A Unique character creation system with many options for creating the Djali, Peacekeepers of the known worlds.
  • Richly details and realized alien cultures and beliefs.
  • A vast collection of useful gear and tools for your hero to use in their travels across the known worlds of ORUN.
  • A full-length adventure throwing your heroes into the action.

It appears the character sheet on page 284 is not entirely blank and ready for player use. The player's path is already written in (War) and the players skill points are already chosen (Adapt 1, Covert 4, Culture 1, etc).

Also, will a black and white printer friendly version of the character sheet be made available?

Yes, we're working on the printable PDF of the Character sheet.

Edit suggestions to the char sheet PDF:

- (page 1 & 2) in the upper-right corner, it says "Path: War", and think it's meant to just say "Path:", so you can write which path your character have yourself, right?
- (page 2) the orange outline seems to have the title "reputation", which is barely readable. Regardless if it's the correct title or not, it could make sense to make the title more readable, or just to remove it.

- it could be a good idea to add the sheet pdf to the actual DTRPG product (and or link in the description), so it's easier for people to find. Would also make sense for the Quickstart version. (if you end up updating the char sheet pdf, it will be easier for people later to notice the file attached to the product have changed, than search for a link in the comments.

- (extra) if it isn't too much work, it could make sense to make a full-page version of the sheet pdf, so you'd have more space for writing and whatnot,...See more

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
